God Loves YOU

God Loves YOU

This song has been not only on my mind but on my heart for several weeks. Can anyone really hear my heart that is crying for help? My cry is deep down, just waiting to burst out.

Satan attacks and attacks day in and day out.

But when this happens of why I feel so far away for God and from everyone else this comes to mind when I am finally starting to feel peace.

I believe in the sun even when it’s not shining
I believe in love even when I don’t feel it
And I believe in God even when He is silent
And I, ….
No dark can consume Light
No death greater than this life
We are not forgotten
Hope is found when we say
Even when He is silent

This incredible song is by a group called BarlowGirls, and it is so true. As it is stated in Deuteronomy 31:6 it says, “…never will I leave you or forsake you”.

So, if you are like me, feeling like no one can hear you, wanting to feel so close to the Lord and others, have hope because He is always there with you! Keep seeking His face, don’t ever stop. And, after a while, you will notice that everyone was there all along.

Here is a poem to show hope and encouragement.

One night I dreamed a dream.
As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonging to me and one to my Lord.

After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
there was only one set of footprints.

This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
“Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
You’d walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.”

He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you.”

What Does Love Look Like?

What Does Love Look Like?

Arms Wide Open by Misty Edwards

“What does love look like?” is the question I’ve been
Pondering
“What does love look like?”
“What does love look like?” is the question I’ve been
Asking of You

I once believed that love was romance, just a chance
I even thought that love was for the lucky and the
Beautiful
I once believed that love was a momentary bliss
But love is more than this
All You ever wanted was my attention
All You ever wanted was love from me
All You ever wanted was my affections, to sit here at
Your feet

Then I sat down, a little frustrated and confused
If all of life comes down to love
Then love has to be more than sentiment
More than selfishness and selfish gain

And then I saw Him there, hanging on a tree, looking at
Me
I saw Him there, hanging on a tree, looking at me
He was looking at me, looking at Him, staring through
Me
I could not escape those beautiful eyes
And I began to weep and weep

He had arms wide open, a heart exposed

Arms wide open; He was bleeding, bleeding

Love’s definition, love’s definition was looking at me
Looking at Him, hanging on a tree
I began to weep and weep and weep and weep

This is how I know what love is, this is how I know
What love is

And as I sat there weeping, crying
Those beautiful eyes, full of desire and love

He said to me, “You shall love Me, You shall love Me
You shall love Me, You shall love Me”

With arms wide open, a heart exposed
With arms wide open, bleeding, sometimes bleeding

If anybody’s looking for love in all the wrong places
If you’ve been searching for love, come to Me, come to
Me
Take up your cross, deny yourself
Forget your father’s house and run, run with Me
You were made for abandonment, wholeheartedness
You were made for someone greater, someone bigger, so
Follow Me
And You’ll come alive when you learn to die
